Frequently Asked Questions
These are most of the questions we have been asked by our customers
Does too much Vermicompost burn plants?
No, surprisingly it doesn’t. We have tested planting into pure vemicompost and it never burned the plants roots.
How long does the Vermicompost stay effective
You can expect the fertilizer to work it’s magic for several months
How much do I need?
See our blog post on how to use our Vermicompost here.
Do I have those worms in my garden already?
Red Wigglers are very rarely found in our soil – you might have worms in your garden, but they are probably a different type of worm. Look out for worms that are around 10cm long, 0,5cm thick and have a reddish colour
Is there proof that Vermicompost is better?
There are literally thousands of articles, blog posts and experiments you can find online to prove how great vermicompost works.
Where do your worms come from?
We usually import new worms from Germany or buy them from local farmers if they happened to have any.
Can I also buy the worms?
At the moment we are not selling our little workers. But we will in the future, so hang in there! But you will find some eggs in our vermicompost, so you can try to cultivate them.
Why is Vermicompost so expensive?
Comparing the price of vermicompost to usual compost is like comparing a wine with grape juice. It works completely different – more like a natural fertilizer. So rather compare its price with chemical fertilizers.
Where are you based?
Currently our production is still on a “back yard level”. We produce the vermicompost in our backyard in Ludwigsdorf, Windhoek.
Can I give you my worms?
Everyone likes gifts – and so do we! If you have some worms to give away we are always happy to welcome them to our garden.
